Summary
Brief summary
Current treatment for emphysema is limited to measures that include inhaled oxygen,
bronchodilators, anti-inflammatory drugs and pulmonary rehabilitation. Highly invasive
procedures such as lung volume reduction surgery or lung transplantation are also performed.
Treatment using the Exhale Drug-Eluting Stent (DES) is a minimally invasive bronchoscopic
treatment that has the potential to reduce shortness of breath in emphysema patients. This
study tests the safety and effects of Exhale DES in the treatment of patients with emphysema.
